Odd Matterazzi report from the beeb

Mad Materazzi

"Materazzi's most famous moment at Everton was when he was sent off against Coventry after he was the victim of a Darren Huckerby dive.

In that single season Materazzi managed to clock up three red cards and 12 yellows.
Poor Marco slumped against an advertising hoarding on the touchline in tears, and to say sympathy was in short supply from his manager Smith, his own fans and team-mates is understatement of the year.

There were highs - such as a brilliant free-kick against Middlesbrough that sparked scenes of such joy from Marco that he may still have been celebrating now had the referee not demanded a re-start.

But it ended as it had started, in tears. Materazzi left Goodison Park with little fanfare and no regrets on either side.

Gone and presumably forgotten."

Nice of the bbc & Phil McNulty (who should know better) to tell us what we remember.
